Unknown oddities and familiar objects with remarkable stories lined the shelves of the original cabinets of curiosities. Viewers could witness stories of the world, told through the art of collecting, arranging and displaying objects.
The items that clutter up our pockets, our bags, our mantelpieces, the spaces under our beds all hold stories about our lives. A group of contemporary artists from a wide range of disciplines will take pieces of art and pieces of clutter and create a kind of self-portrait in their own cabinet of curiosities. We can peer into these cabinets and learn about the artists from the things they choose to represent themselves in their own miniature museums.
